3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at clybourn. Pours dark brown, almost black with a small brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, and smoky meat. Taste of is roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Lingering coffee taste. The only thing I found different from their regular oatmeal stout was a nice smoky taste underneath the malt and chocolate.

On tap @ Maproom. Similar to the oatmeal stout by GI. Deep, dark brown appearance with a medium size tan head and good lacing. Roasted chocolate malt aroma with notes of coffee following close behind. Taste mimics the aroma along with some lacteal characteristics. Fairly smooth, moderately sweet with a lingereing finish.
